Catch And Release


watercolors, india ink & acrylic ink

Oh, watercolors, where have you been all my life?! I've sort of forgotten how to use them properly, but i'm having fun experimenting again!

Do you stretch your paper? When I use watercolours without stretching my paper wrinkles and when I do stretch the paper gets stuck to the board and rips :( Any advice? Your watercolour is beautiful!

I don't stretch my paper, I've actually never tried it. (I'm afraid to rips!). This piece is on Bristol Vellum, i like how smooth it is. Although, it does seem to absorb the water really quickly, so you have to paint fast if you want the color to be even.

And Vanilla, I'll definitely be posting more soon :)
